Welcome to San Francisco, Archbishop Cordileone!

Bishop Salvatore J. Cordileone

Yesterday on October 4th, the feast of St. Francis, the Archdiocese of San Francisco welcomed their new shepherd, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone. Archbishop Cordileone is also chairman of the USCCB Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, which is responsible for theĀ Marriage: Unique for a Reason project, so we wish him all the best in his new pastoral role.

In a news release posted on the Archdiocese of San Francisco’s website, it says that at his installation mass, the new Archbishop “encouraged renewal of the Church in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi, the city’s patron.” Archbishop Cordileone also noted that Francis’ response to the problems of his time was holiness. “He focused on the universal call to holiness, each person according to their vocation in life.”

One response to “Welcome to San Francisco, Archbishop Cordileone!”

  1. Why don’t the priest preach against same sex marriage, abortion, Homosexual, and all the evils in our country. When they give their homilies.
